Former Manchester United defender, Nemanja Vidic, has blamed the club’s manager, Jose Mourinho, for their 3-1 defeat by Manchester City on Sunday at Etihad.
Manchester City had defeated the Red Devils with goals from David Silva, Sergio Aguero and IIkay Gundogan as Anthony Martial spot kick was not enough to get a point for Mourinho’s side.
Vidic stated that the Manchester United team that were defeated were not the United he used to know, but the Mourinho’s United. He showed interest in wanting to coach United in the future.
“It’s not the Manchester we are used to watching,” Vidic told beIN Sports.
“It’s Mourinho’s Manchester and, when he came to Manchester, you have to accept that he is the manager who is going to play this kind of football.
“It is the kind of football he played at Inter, at Chelsea more or less, and (Real) Madrid maybe it was more open.
“At the end of the day, that’s Mourinho’s football.”
“To be honest, in the future I would like to be the manager.
“I would like to think that I know things. For me to criticise Jose Mourinho, as someone who may be in the future can become the manager, is not fair.”
The defeat to City leaves United 12 points behind the Premier League champions.
